on many fronts today. president obama again talking trade and immigration reform down in mexico before leaving the country he named kenny pritzker of the marriott hotel family as our new commerce secretary. in boston, the marathon bombing suspect told investigators he and his brother originally planned to plant suicide bombs on the fourth of july but get the bombs done early sol they would focus on the boston marathon instead that. and a whole lot more instead coming up on current tv. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the d
that krisie gave so phenomenal, talking about how obama was demoralizing the economy, he was tough as nails against odama. he was just doing his job here it seems to me, he knows get what he's saying on the six-month anniversary is i want everybody to know i'd do it again if i had to do it over again. >> in this specific incident of this national disaster, i understand why he did what he did. i can tell you on the whole, president obama has not united this unk. remember when he said, we're not red states, we're not blue states. we're the united states t. president hasn't acted like that by and large. did he come to the aid and do in sandy, did that tie him up in a bad way for mit t romney? i think so. looking back on it, i think chris christie will say, yeah, i did what i did. i'm in the ashamed of it. >> do you think republican republican is always attacking, attacking rich people, oil and gas companies. we will get him back later in the show. she back attacking health insurance companies and the rest. do you think he's changed his tune? is he less divisive now? is this charm offensive, ma
about long term problems, we would be thinking about the long term unemployment. obama has talked about this somewhat but that is not where washington's mindset is right now. >> you mentioned manufacturing. zero gain there. in other areas, professional business services, leisure, hospitality, 43,000. that may improve over the summer. health care, 19,000. construction, lost 6,000. government lost 11,000. are those losses, you mentioned government. is the construction number the result of sequester? >> there's been a lougs boom. whether or not that will continue after such a low base. the other thing to look into these number is that professional business services, a lot of these are really, really poorly paid jobs. yes, you have a job if you have 26,000 a year, but that, too, is something we should think about. what is the wage level. not the unemployment rate. the wage level of an employed person. >> when governor perry was running for president, he touted texas a lot, apply home state. what he was remiss in saying is you have people who were employed but were in low waning jobs and man
, and their celebrity guests a little bit of a chance to kick back and laugh at each other's expense. president obama began the evening talking about the massive amounts of spent to unsuccessfully remove him from the white house. >> did you know that sheldon adelson spent $100 million of his own money last year on negative ads. you've got to really dislike me to spend that kind of money. i mean, that's opr money. you could buy an island and call it nobama for that kind of money. sheldon would have been better off offering me $100 million to drop out of the race! i probably wouldn't have taken it, but i would have thought about it. michelle would have taken it. you think i'm joking. >> president obama and this area's host conan o'brien also had a little bit of fun with the president's relationship towards members of congress and the media. >> of course, even after i've done all of this, some folks still don't think i spend enough time with congress. why don't you get a drink with mitch mcconnell, they ask. really? why don't you get a drink with mitch mcconnell?! >> i know the relationship between the
ideas. not talking about the tea party. talking about liberals. so the of the week obama's at the debt is not a problem. for 10 years we don't have to worry about debt. not just that, deficit spending close become. i read almost everything again online and there are furious people in mainstream publications who sat there and argued during the debt ceiling debate that we should have a trillion dollar platinum coin, deposited in the treasury and wash her hands of this. these are serious people and they called the tea party crazy. safi like the whole world is spinning out of control and i'm the only normal person in it, with you guys, and everyone has just gone crazy. think about obama and budgets and everything we talk about. his budget is a huge massive zero-sum fallacy masquerading as policy. it's not a budget like you think of a budget. it's not about economic growth. it's about fairness. he doesn't care about growth. he looks at the world as a piper come sure most of you read milton friedman and you have ridiculous that is. which brings the to the scares prospect of all. what does th
and sandy leveled the shot at the white house. governor christie was talking about president obama's response to the most devastating hurricane since tau treen gnaw. since katrina. >> the president has kept every proposition he made. that's what i was saying at the time. what i was saying was i was asked how is the president doing. i said he is doing a good job. he kept his word. since that time i have to say everything they ms proked they would do -- they promised they would do they have done. >> that continued overt support for the president has many conservatives scratching our heads saying i like the governor, but why does he continue to drool over the president for just doing his job? kimberly, governor christie, christie has an election coming up this year, next year, i believe. is this about that or is there a bigger picture? >> didn't you hear the jokes at the white house oh the big joke that christie was at a republican table and everyone started laughing? and you seem to always be such a big fan. now the tables have turned. >> i will get to that. >> you are confusing the

took it to maureen dowd. charlie pierce and i talked about how irritating this article was. obama took note of a column by maureen dowd who criticized the white house for not deploying pitbull legislative aides to depict votes liking michael douglas did in the movie the american president. no one likes the world to be more like the american president than me. >> we don't know the difference. >> stephanie: exactly my point, jim. obama joked michael what's your secret? could it be you were an actor in an alan sorkin liberal fantasy? [ applause ] thank you. we talk to hot brie, melissa fitzgerald about this. some people go oh, why isn't it like the west wing? because it's not written by alan sorkin. republicans don't get their lines from alan sorkin. they're douche nozzles. 45 minutes after the hour. i'm in a state today. >> are you! you need some smelling salts and a fainting couch? >> stephanie: i haven't even gotten started on the plan b thing. 45 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> this is the dirtiest show -- [ laughter ] >> i have ever been on in al
first national television interview? >> you know what this is -- my first talking about myself. when president obama first ran the first time, i was a surrogate for him on some tv shows. this is the first time, yeah. >> good. i want people to look back on this and use this video when you are in your presidential campaign, i don't know, 20 years down the road or when ever that's going to happen. it is my honor to say that linda forry, the history maker in boston gets tonight's last word. thank you, linda. >> thank you, lawrence. >>> friends. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. whose side are you on? the side of terrorists who attacked hundreds of people killing three, wounding dozens and dozens more, or are you on the side of the country you're living in, the country you've come to study in, learn from, become an adult in? on the side of the person identified as the killer or on the side of those he killed and those he deliberately tried to kill. before someone starts singin
, but he said he was from canada. he was born in canada. they talk about obama being from kenya. he's from canada. he cap the president. -- cannot be president. elizabeth warren seems like she israel honest -- real honest. bernie sanders, for instance -- you've got a few in washington that really care about the people, in my opinion. pick the ones, in my opinion, that will push the corporate agenda. the people will be left out in the cold what we have been for the past years. it is all about profits in this country. it is no longer about the people. host: rusty from kentucky putting his pitch in for elizabeth warren and bernie sanders as well. del fromo down to pennsylvania on our democratic line. caller: good morning. i watched senator cruz's speech last night. it was a little confusing. he said his father came to this country in 1957 after being tortured in cuba. guess what? 1957, our allies were running cuba. a man named bautista. right away, you got to be suspicious of the sky. host: talk about your pick for the democratic field. caller: i do not have a pick at this point. it is too so
a little extra support in other places. 71% of the hispanic vote. 71%. 73% voted for president obama. but the black vote was spectacular. he got 93% of the black vote. talk about a consensus, that is a consensus. the key was the black voter turnout. making just about 12% of the eligible voters in the country. they turned up 13% of the total votes from last year. for the first time ever, voters turn out at a higher rate than white voters overall last year. in fact, if they turned out at the same rate as they did back in 2004, governor romney would have actually won the election. it's not clear that the democratic party can repeat last year's performance. but one thing is clear. everything the republican party did was inadequate. they certainly demonstrated that the republican party has a lot of thinking to do. they better find some better thinkers if they are going to be competitive in the next. the president and his transportation secretary. apparently not a requisite for the job. the dramatic new report from the epa signals a dramatic shift in the debate of refracting. john roberts
helping president obama. why am i not surprised? tonight we'll talk to erica laugherty whose mother is the courageous sandy hook principal who died protecting those kids. she confronted a u.s. senator who voted against that bill. that was a tough moment for her. >>> what do we do about gitmo? this is a tough one. especially around progressives. no country wants to take the prisoners that we have. we can't just let them go, can we? how long can the united states actually hold prisoners without taking them to trial? >>> also, jon stewart said it best. he always does. congress only cares about meals on wheels when those meals are coming down the aisle on a nice airplane. tonight the head of the meals on wheels program himself is coming here to talk about the suffering because of these cuts, because of the sequestration. >>> by now, everyone should know, you don't tug on superman's cape. you don't spit into the wind. and you don't mess around with governor chris christie of new jersey. as some new jersey folks found out. this is "hardball," the place for politics. he's not gonna selu so
are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai
those stories. we are talking to you about your view of president obama's second term. let's get to the catskills, new york, republican line. caller: i was going to comment on the middle east. wants to closee guantanamo bay is got backfire. what is going on in the middle east with a iran and israel, egypt, the moslem brotherhood syria, is turning into a tinderbox. israel will do something with iran soon and we will need that prison opened. host: troy, alabama, independent line. confused ande get they need to go back to school. with people'sicks minds the way you screen calls. if you look at what the president said yesterday, you look at article one of the constitution, section 7 -- it will explain to the job of the president and the congress. the congress is supposed to come up with devyn and the president is supposed to sign the bills. if the house and senate did their job, they are not doing it and they are embarrassing america. they don't know anything. all your callers don't know anything. you'll find the right answers if you read and you will see the truth. all these comment
as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo
?s event. [laughter] we also have something else in common, i too recently got in trouble for talking about a public official's good looks. it was when i would not shut up about that stone cold fox, secretary of transportation ray lahood. oh, man. i like the cut of his jib. [laughter] president obama, you had some great jokes. it was a pleasure watching you stand here and do what i do. now it is only fair that i get to do what you do. that is right, ladies and gentlemen, for the next 15 minutes i will be mired in a dysfunctional standoff with congress. this is going to be fun. [laughter] i would like to formally congratulate the president on his reelection. congratulations. [applause] as you all know, he is hard at work reading jobs. since he was first selected, the number of popes has doubled. >> > hter] and the number of tonight show hosts has tripled. congratulations. [laughter] while i'm at it, i would like to congratulate president george w. bush on big dedication of his presidential library. yes, the library has millions of books, articles, and documents and if you go, you can be the
'm not sure how much president obama can intervene in the battles inside the republican party. what he can do is use executive powers, bully pulpit and veto pen -- >> let's talk about the constitution we all grew up. we're about the same age. i was telling this to our producers today, younger than me, a lot of them. the constitution doesn't guarantee the united states senate represents the american people. it represents the states. if you look at a map of the united states, most of the map physically is republican and conservative. it's rural. it's vast spaces in the south. and especially in the rocky mountain west. >> yep. >> all that space is represented in many cases by republican senators. >> right. >> who are pro gun. >> right. >> when you go to have a vote, 90% of the country wants background checks expanded. the senate goes the other direction. you go, whoa, it could be because the senate is representing land. you're laughing. the people out there in big cities go, what happened to my vote? my vote doesn't count as much as the guy living in utah. senators of new york and california rep
. >> greta: massachusetts is typically a democratic state. president obama did very well in massachusetts. congressman markey is running on the obama agenda. how do you compete with that? >> i'm running against a person the poster boy for term limits. if we continue to talk about this, more person responsibility, more personal freedoms, that's resonating with republicans, and moderate democrats in the state. we could go in the urban areas and expand the party and be more inclusive. we're confident we'll bring a lot of independent and moderate democrats under our tent. we're very confident going into the general election here. >> greta: thank you very much. we did put in a call to congressman markey. he's unavailable this week. hopefully he'll join us some time. thank you, mr. gomez. >> please go to gomezfor.com. >> greta: coming up, the hunt for the killer of an 8-year-old girl taking a new turn tonight. the latest is next. and remember college student amanda knox? she's telling all. hear what she says about the interrogation that led to her it's a brand new start. your chance to rise and
. louisville against duke. so i talked to him about what's ahead for him as far as basketball goes, but also what is he going to say to president obama, who is a big basketball fan? here's what he told me. >> kevin ware, how are feeling tonight? >> great. it's an honor to be here, honestly. i know it sparked a lot of people. this is definitely a privilege. i appreciate it. >> what everyone wants to know, having watched your horrible injury during the elite eight, they want to know how you're feeling. >> good. i'm putting pressure on my leg already. everything's really ahead of schedule. i'm four weeks in this sunday, and i feel like i'll be fine in six months for sure. i'll be back playing next season like nothing happened, honestly. god mis hpen a he justst a wake. wanted to show me something differently, wanted me to slow down a little bit, and that's all. but um fine. >> i have amazing perspective. and you're here tonight, this is normally the nexus of hollywood and washington. you're sort of bringing the basketball, which i imagine president obama is pretty happy about as a big basketbal
as a democratic society. >> all right. let's talk about your values as a democratic society that you believe we should have. president obama alluding to those, although not yesterday, when it comes to gun law and gun legislation. largely really brushing off that issue. how might you, as you look at the mansion issue, mansion saying he sees another opportunity at introducing legislation, but after the failure, how does one regain the momentum on this subject? >> we regain the momentum by understanding what happened in newtown and littleton and other places. the house of representatives is paid to vote on an issue. now, the senate, despite the disappointment of a failed vote, at least they had the courage to vote. the house of republicans under speaker john boehner, is hiding behind the senate. people deserve a vote. you can vote yes on background checks, as i would, you can vote no on background checks, but speaker boehner, give these americans the vote that they deserve. it is a dereliction of duty for the house of representatives not even to bring a vote on background checks to the floor of th
. obama is chatting with right now, you can see the president talking with ed henry, the white house correspondent for fox news, previously cnn, longtime viewers of the washington journal remember that for years ed henry did ourressional updates on morning program. that is the head table at the white house correspondents dinner. >> continued live coverage on c- span of the white house correspondent's dinner at the hilton hotel in dupont circle. this may be 7-8 blocks from the white house, just north of dupont circle which is about 21st street in washington. the white house is in the 1600 block. ,his is a tweet from g tweeting, dear people of washington, please eat a little faster. it is 1:59 a.m. in the uk and i just want to hear the speeches. ,ome of the guests attending mayor bloomberg, barbra streisand and kevin spacey. asaw kevin spacey earlier, lot of you criticizing c-span for not getting barbra streisand on camera. my guess is, we would have shown her if we had found her by now. i don't know if she's actually there. i think she is. michael j fox as a guest of nbc, along with m
for different reasons but believe better not eidenshink any policy obama has implemented is the big problem either but there's something much greater the thing that scares me the most is the bombing has mainstream radical thinking people believe crazy ideas most of them were talking about liberals that the two-party yesterweek he said that's not a problem in 10 years. plus deficit spending grows the economy. them more that the better the economy will be. i read almost everything i can online and there are people in mainstream publications who sat there and argued during the debt ceiling debate we should have $1 trillion point* to deposit in the treasury and wash our hands these are serious people and they call the two-party crazies' wife feel the whole world is spinning out of control and i am the only normal person with you and everybody has gone crazy. think about obama and the budget it is a huge massive fallacy masquerading as policy it is not what you think about economic growth is vernets he doesn't care about growth. i am sure you have read milton friedman which brings me to this ser
're going to be talking to people who are still dramatically impacted. >> yeah, i am. to the point you're talking about, this storm hit here october 29th of last year. the federal aid package was signed by president obama on january 29th, 50.5 billion. so that is three months it took for that to get through. a lot of that money hasn't been released here so that is why you're hearing chuck schumer and peter king and all of these people so furious and angry because these people want to get moving and rebuilding. a lot of the parts of the rock aways are ghost towns because they don't have the resources to come back and build. we will hear from those guys this morning and ask him why it took so long. obviously, there were some political reasons. so there is a lot of politics involved here and it's taking a long time. still six months later and there are ruins all over this beach. >> look at that. >> you go up and down the jersey shore, mike. certainly even here in asbury park, and there's nothing there. you'll see a restaurant here and then vacant lots for four or five, six lots down on be
who have been killed, which is fairly small, is an issue for the administration. we're talking about weapons of mass destruction. this wasn't mass destruction. so, i think that's a game assad is playing that makes it more difficult for president obama. >> what would he would be hoping, congresswoman, he tries a few chemical weapons, america and the rest of the world doesn't respond, and that demoralizes the opposition. how far would you go to support more military action? >> no country in the region wants boots on the ground. we had king abdullah come to the united states, what he was asking for was help with a political situation, russia is in a position to help pressure assad, and i think that he has to go. i don't think there's any question about that. but, i think that all of these options have to be looked at, because the day after, the day after assad, is the day that these chemical weapons could be at risk, that if we don't address the growing sectarian that is there, and help the people who are more moderate, we could be in bigger, even bigger trouble the day after. >> i want
aim to the president's health care law saying it is keeping some companies from hiring. we will talk to him next on "morning joe." ♪ ♪ >>> 26 past the hour. here with us now republican senator from wyoming, senator john barrasso who recently wrote in the investment business daily about obama care and he says it's blocking job creation and economic growth and here is why. he writes, in part, now even more working americans are seeing their hours cut because of the unreasonable burdens of the president's health law. the culprit is a requirement in the law that companies with more than 50 full-time workers provide expensive one-size fits all health insurance. some small businesses stopped hiring to stay below that number of employees and others are cutting full-time workers back to part-time status. the federal reserve reported in march the health care law is a major concern for businesses. the drop in hours and the reluctance to hire are having a ripple effect throughout our economy. wages stagnant and economic growth anemic. people who have lost their jobs and out of work two or t
